I've seen them advertised often in the past, but can't remember where.

I'm sure that is what you have, however.

I wish I had one for my open tractors. It would have to be pretty loud, however, to keep track of baseball and football games. It would also need to have the FM band for the classical music station I like to listen to. I'm an unconventional farmer that way.

You can still buy these at CT or TSC and probably even at the local implement dealer. I have the holes on my 560 hood right in front of the steering wheel where my uncle had his mounted for many years. They haad a pretty good volume on them as they had to combat the tractor engine so you could hear them.

Yup. Saw some at the TSC store in Temple just the other day. My thought was that the volume would have to be very loud to be heard over the tractor.

Spent A LOT of time listening to WLS in Chicago to one of those Automatic radios. I got a "TENNA" for my birthday when I was 14 to go on My H and Super H. The radio just finally died. I'm enlarging the enclosure now at home to put an AM/FM/cassette & a couple speakers out of a car in it. Dad tried mounting them on the axle carrier of M's & mounting them in frt of the steering wheel. Mine's going in frt of the steering wheel! They pretty much had to be played WIDE OPEN to be heard over the engine. You could actually hear the radio better from a half mile away than You could hear the tractor! Problem with the old Automatics was the enclosure was about a foot tall. I couldn't see over it when it was in frt of the steering wheel, hense, the fender or axle carrier mount.
